Steroid use is very prominent in the world of athletes, and others looking to improve their physical appearance and performance. There are many side effects that come from the use of steroids. Users of steroids are more than aware of the possible outcomes that may occur while administering steroids, but many choose to ignore what research has shown in order to achieve athletic achievements or change their physical appearance. Steroids significantly increase strength and lean muscle mass. Baseball players took full advantage of increased strength and muscle size during the Steroid Era, and set new records multiple times throughout this timespan. Home runs and fastball velocity surged, and fans were all in on what was going on in the sport.
